|Quartz var. Amethyst
|Piedra Parada, near Las Vigas, Tatatila, Veracruz, Mexico
|Many amethyst quartz crystals covering two sides of matrix. The color varies from pink-purple at the base to medium purple at the terminations. Two crystals were restored (I only spotted the repair when viewing under UV - the glue fluoresced).
